Yarn Guerillas vs Garden Guerillas

Monday morning bright and early saw my fellow cohorts & I sneaking into a Guerilla garden & yarnbombing it.

We had a ball sneaking around this cute little veggie garden and "adding" our various bits and pieces.

The photos come courtesy of my beautiful daughter.  She's visiting for Christmas & had a ball running around with my camera.  She also made some fruit, veg & flowers from felt to plant.  Thanks sweetie!

We hope they have as much fun finding them as we did yarnbombing them!

Ok, flower jag is officially over.  I'm pretty sick of making these now, but they filled a gap and will come in useful for our next yarnbombing effort.

18 flowers stuck on bamboo skewers wrapped with yarn.
What else goes in a garden?  Hmmm ... maybe a not-so-welcome visitor.  Python anyone?  Hee hee hee!!

Eric the (half-a) bee

How cute is this little guy?

I originally was making him for our next yarnbombing effort, but he took rather a long time to make and is just soooo adorable I don't think I want to give him up.  My initial thought was to make a bunch of these with different coloured stripes, but it's rather a lot of work for something only 10 cm long.

My plans shall have to be rethunk.  Maybe flowers on a pipecleaner?

(Please forgive my Monty Python reference - Eric earned his name when he was half done.  I couldn't resist!)
